Birthday Treats

I was dreading my birthday this year, 36 is the wrong side of 35! closer to 40 than 30 iyswim lol! I had no plans to celebrate it, the day came just like any other (it was Wednesday) I went to work - as you do and it was just like any other day BUT THEN I got home and I got the post!!! OMG how my day to a full turn!

First the RM van came with a big squidgy parcel for me, it was very unexpected and i had no idea what it might be. I opened it to discover that it was a stunning hand quilted cushion made by my wonderful - newly found, cousin Gill. She has the biggest talent and the biggest heart ever!! Take a look.....
Sorry the photo is a bit blurry but you can still see how beautiful it is can't you, she even made me a matching card! Thank you so much Gill I love you to bits
So the next visit was from the post man, look at all these hand made cards that dropped through the door....

I have such lovely, generous and talented friends, thank you Sian, Karen, Gill, Shell, Mellie and Ruth, they are beautiful mmmmwahhhhh.Just as I was reading the last of my cards there came a knock at the door.......
Look what was awaiting me!!!! Phwarrrrr!!





These are from my wonderful friend Karen, I love her to bits you know, I'm such a lucky girl. The flowers in this basket are so fresh they will last for ages! Karen must know me so well because she has included my favourite flowers - Freesias, my room smells delightful!Thank you so so much Karen, I wish I could give you a real hug instead of a cyber one xxxxx

So you see, in the end being 36 turned out not so badf after all!
